U CAN help with a CAN is a collective project to help stock the shelves of the Larchwood United Church of Christ Food Pantry. Again this year, it will take place during the parade at Larchwood Family Days. Here's how it works:

You know how people in a parade throw candy to the spectators? Well this is different. This is just as much fun, but it's also just the opposite.

1. Go the grocery store and buy some canned goods for the Food Pantry.

2. On the day of the parade, bring your canned goods to the parade and keep them with you. That's Saturday, July 8th

3. During the parade, you will see Larchwood UCC parade float - U CAN help with a CAN. With it will be several walkers. Hand your can or cans to the walkers and they will place them on the parade float.

4. Then smile. Because just like that, you have helped to feed a local family. And you had fun!
